blood

120/70 64.

Today I had textbook blood pressure and heartrate when I went to give blood. Where I live we are eligible to give blood fifty-six days after you've given blood, and that is what I did. Next time will be September 27th, and I'll be doing it again then. Do you give blood?

I used to regularily but afterwards, the nurses always had to lay me down and cover me with wet paper towels because I would get dizzy. So I don't go anymore. That and it taking the nurses about 15 minutes just to find a suitable vein to draw the blood from. I am more hassle than I am worth, I think.

I never have but I definitely should.

Hi Phil Plasma,

You remember me right now. I will go to The Blood Bank here, in a few days. Not for patient people, for my health!

I've never been that desparate, but I could use some pocket change right about now

I've heard of places in the world where you get paid for giving blood, here in Canada it is completely voluntary.
